Some of you might remember I had a wrist synovectomy about a month ago - the aim was to tidy up the joint, shave down the ulna bone and try to protect my tendons.
It all seemed to go really well, my recovery appeared to be pretty good and I'd gone back to work after a month off and started driving again but then my hand started to swell and unfortunately the extensor tendon of my little finger ruptured.
So I'm back to hospital on Tuesday for tendon repair followed by another lengthy recovery period - although such a backward step is devastating I'm pretty pragmatic about the whole thing, this is the hand I've been dealt so I wil have to find a way to deal with it.
The plan is to repair rather than replace the tendon with an artificial one and then maybe remove some of my ulna head to protect the fix up job.
Here's hoping it goes well!
